Nissan GT-R wrecked trying to keep up with Evo

Another one bites the dust, a Nissan GT-R is wrecked! Chasing an Evo in a downhill touge battle isn't always the brightest idea. Sure the GT-R has a higher price tag, but that doesn't mean it can keep up with the nimble and much smaller Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. Could it have been the driver? Maybe, but honestly I think the Nissan GT-R is a much bigger car and that is why it was wrecked. Too much mass moving down the road, and it probably wasn't modified to restrict chassis sway which helped lead the vehicle into the wall.

The Mitsubishi Evo used in this touge battle gone wrong is heavily modified, and outfitted with all the goodies. Modified suspension and a modified driver make it a potent tool for accomplishing a touge battle with excellence. The Nissan GT-R was probably driven by a new driver, and when you mix touge battles with new cars, new drivers, and night time conditions something always goes wrong. Not every touge battle ends up this way, but some do. It's a shame to see the Nissan GT-R torn up like this, but shift happens and apparently this one shifted to the right; right into the wall!
